Year 10 have been showing tremendous practical skills during recent D & T sessions. We are working throughout the term on the task of creating a mobile phone holder. This is a project that started off with some sketches, and will end with the finished product of a sturdy holder made out of acrylic.
The pupils have been learning about the importance of creating a precise template, and then replicating this exact design in the acrylic. Other skills involved included careful sawing, filing down and then polishing the holder come the close of the project. Co-ordination is a key skill here that we are seeking to improve.
